I have one on my Pearson
. I believe my 424 has a 2:1 ratio. I haven't had any problems in the past 2 years, and it appeared when I bought the boat to have not really been touched in the past 24 years. Maintenance
is easy, remove the lug nut in the bottom side (opposite of the engine
side), drain the oil
, and fill with straight 30 weight motor oil
. Mine takes maybe a pint, and I usually run a bit through to clean it out. I haven't really done much else with it other than take the rust off that was there when I bought it and give it a good paint
job to protect it.
